Aston Villa 5 Notts County 3 (aet)

Good entertainment by the sounds of it and with such a strange line up against what are after all pro footballers who would have been giving it their best i'm just happy to have won. But Tim if you don't pick a strong team in the next round and we lose to that shower of shite from up the road you are gonna be mighty unpopular.

There is experimenting and there is insanity and the team picked last night was as close as I've seen to the latter.

Very true Rich....its not often you spend 5 minutes looking at the players selected trying to work out the formation and the best you can come up with is WTF ?

Firstly, fair play to all those that could have gone last night bothered their arses to go. We definitely got our money's worth. Those who 'couldn't be bothered', I wonder how many of you will turn up at the Blues game or want a Wembley ticket should we do the unthinkable and get there?

I know you went to Wembley last season but if I remember rightly, you wasn't at villa park for the cup games against Blackpool and Bournemouth in the earlier rounds

Yes, the starting line-up was nuts but, despite the suicidal look the Villans had at times, the game was great entertainment. Found it being steamed in a bar owned by a Villan and there were just the two of us and a couple of obsessed Baggies watching it on one screen going buck mad while everyone else in the place watched the Celtic, Stoke or Bournemouth matches on the other screens. Great night´s craic, even before the draw.

UTV! Bring on the Blues!

All of their goals had class written across them, all ours looked ordinary in comparison BUT a wins a win guys.

You remember rightly, I worked them days so couldn't go.

However I do have a season ticket and go week in week out whenever I can.

The first goal took a deflection. Second was a penalty.

Burkes was class. I even applauded it.

One of grealish's best games imo. Just needs more confidence in his shooting. Anybody else see him go to clap the county fans as well? The kids class

Anyway I felt the play from some of our players last night was comical to say the least. I question how Nathan Baker has a new contract, and you can see why Leandro Bacuna is being picked ahead of Hutton (even though im no Bacuna fan).

Gil wasn't great for me - he grew into the game but I still don't see the fascination with him. Ayew - is he even a footballer?

I felt that Grealish impressed more and more as the game got on, while Richardson was pretty solid most of the game. Well done to Sinclair on his hat-trick but he really could of had 5-6 last night.

I thought the 'Who Goes, Who Doesn't" topic was put to bed ages ago by the mods of which you are one (and also forum founder). So why do we persist in trying to split the community with comments like the above ???
